Bandsaw trick, Well we don't have a woodworking forum!

Did a re-sawing trick today that I saw on one of the PBS woodworking shows It worked very well.

2.5 thick white oak junk wood, cut it just 6" wide, about 3' long. squared one edge...Needed help lifting this one!

Set table saw rip fence to 1.25 and ripped each edge of the board about 2" deep. (it's wet wood too)

Then took it to band-saw, without the re-saw guide, and the board on the squared edge. sliced it (very slow, it's only a 14" delta BS) right down the middle. result = 2 nicely book matched boards for free.
